    Summary

    “I wish you would stop being such a martyr,” a languid voice says quietly, drawling as well as a man can with two missing molars and a glassy, bloodshot eye, leaking all the while from open chest wounds. Francis is rather impressed with his dedication to the role, somewhere under the roil of fury and exhaustion. “You know as well as I do that you could have this bed sometimes, if it didn’t suit you to stomp about with blacked eyes and a put-upon expression.”

    “And what should we do with you all the while, Commander,” he says, all on a great sigh, “wrap you in sailcloth already? Come, man, you’re either well enough to cease bleeding on my sheets or too ill to get out of them, you can’t have it both ways.”

    “Francis,” Ross began, “I did not undertake to accept the position of second on Franklin’s expedition for you, as you asked.”

    Summary

    Edward Little and Thomas Jopson died on the shale of King William Island. So bumping into each other in a Bloomsbury lecture hall fifty years later comes as something of a surprise. From the Fabian Society to the Three Day Week, from the trenches to the Pyramids to Old Compton Street - in life after life Edward sees Thomas, and remembers. Is this a chance to put things right? Or is the punishment for his failure in the Arctic to spend eternity losing the man he loves?

    Summary

    'Aren't you tired? Don't you ever want to ease it?'

    In which Francis makes a mistake, and everyone else has to live with the consequences. Set in the gaps of ep. 5: only canon timeline shift is that the Tuunbaq's leg-nabbing is postponed by about a week, so the Crozier/Fitzjames bitchfight continues uninterrupted.
